“The butterfleye camera with Active Eye Intelligence is a 21st century take on outdated 24/7 surveillance systems,” said Ben Nader, founder and CEO, butterfleye. “First, butterfleye gives you instant access to what’s going on in your home no matter where you are. It will not only send you pictures and videos that you can share via social media, but will allow you to take a live look inside your home whenever you want, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones and valuables are safe. Second, when you are home, butterfleye becomes a third party photographer, automatically taking pictures and videos, allowing you to live in the moment and not have to document it from behind the lens of a camera. And third, butterfleye has the ability to connect to other smart devices, enabling new levels of home control and automation.”
While traditional 24/7 surveillance cameras result in hours of unneeded footage, butterfleye’s innovative Active Eye Intelligence features a learning algorithm and video analytics that actually allow it to learn behavior. It knows when people are home and when they are not. It recognizes when there is an important event happening that needs to be recorded and understands when it is time for the camera to shut down. Instead of recording an empty living room, the camera’s energy sensor detects humans and pets and turns on when a live being enters the room. The camera is also triggered by audio intelligence that listens for specific sounds.
Other features of the butterfleye camera include:
Wireless: butterfleye is the first home monitoring camera that is 100% wire-free. Users are never restricted from choosing the perfect location to place the camera. Users can move butterfleye from room-to-room without the use of a power cord and can take the camera with them on the go.
Connected – butterfleye features built in BLE and WIFI technologies that enable connection to other smart devices in the house, such as telling Nest to turn down the thermometer because no one is home or turning on the lights for someone walking into a dark room.
Full HD Quality: The butterfleye camera has a wide-angle 3MPixel lens with high performance in low light environment. Camera includes face detection and a proximity sensor, automatically zooming in on the object of interest and producing high-resolution pictures and 1920 x 1080 videos.
butterfleye App: butterfleye’s smartphone app is extremely powerful and intuitive. It allows users to create, view, edit and save photos and video clips. Functions include live-view from camera and review/view of a users’ timeline. Most importantly, it lets users share their memories on various social media outlets.
Two-Way Audio – The butterfleye camera features a built-in speaker and microphone allowing users to communicate directly with people in their homes.
Storage: butterfleye camera has two types of storage to make sure important moments are never lost: local storage (on the camera) and Cloud storage. Local storage empowers users to literally take the camera with them anywhere, capture beautiful memories and later seamlessly sync those pictures and videos to the Cloud to download on their smartphones. Cloud storage means never having to worry about running out of storage or losing important events. With butterfleye, every event is saved in the Cloud and is accessible from a smartphone.
Ahead of its anticipated end of the year release, butterfleye is holding a crowdfunding campaign, allowing consumers to purchase limited quantities of the smart camera below the suggested retail price of $199. Optional Cloud storage packages will also be available at an additional cost.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
